37 years ago on 4 Oct 1980-M/V PRINSENDAM A FIRE GULF OF ALASKA

37 years ago on 4 Oct 1980.

M/V PRINSENDAM A FIRE GULF OF ALASKA; USCG SAR Case Study, 3 Feb 1981.

Additional personnel training (enclosure 6). The training and expertise of the Air Force pararescuemen was responsible for the survival of passengers in the last lifeboat. It is notable that we were forced to rely on another agency to provide these personnel. I recommend we develop a similar, highly-trained, well-equipped rescue elite.

VII. Personnel
a. The expertise of the Air Force pararescuemen was responsible for the survival of passengers in the last lifeboat. Often, SAR units have cases that require extensive medical training and survival skills. While the EMT program is attempting to provide the required medical skills, little attention is given to air/boat crewmen in skills often needed such as swimming, diving, etc. When rank ordered, the first and fourth goals of the SAR OPP for 1980-1985 are to improve professionalism and on - scene effectiveness. A well-trained, well-equipped cadre of rescue specialists is needed to help attain this goal.
